What is a Hair Tissue Analysis?

Analysis of hair tissue is a non-invasive method (unlike the chelation challenge test) for determining which toxic heavy metals are present in the body. In addition, it can also measure the levels of essential minerals in the body, such as calcium, magnesium and zinc, as well as important mineral ratios.

Too little or too much of any of these essential minerals can have an adverse affect on the human body and it’s ability to recover.

Hair analysis testing is worth doing because a surprising number of people diagnosed with chronic health conditions actually turn out to have a heavy metal problem or mineral deficiencies. Heavy metal problems can be corrected using a safe detoxification program.

A hair analysis allows the underlying problem to be identified and with proper dietary changes, supplementation and detoxification, the chronic health condition often improves. For more information on the benefits of hair analysis testing, click here.


Introducing the Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis Test by Trace Elements, Inc.

We offer a Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (Profile 1) basic test (previously available only through doctors) for only $84. This is the most affordable and accurate hair analysis available.

The multi-element assay of hair (38 elements) is performed by a federally licensed clinical laboratory called Trace Elements, Inc., who have been in business since 1984. (Please note that Trace Elements is a separate company from us, Evenbetternow, LLC). Trace Elements do not sell the hair analysis test to the public directly.

The hair sample is prepared through a series of chemical and high temperature digestive procedures. Testing is then performed using highly sophisticated detection equipment and methods to achieve the most accurate and precise results.

Your 2 page basic report from the laboratory will include the following:

  • Copy of test results showing a computerized bar graph illustration of high, low and reference range levels of the 38 elements listed below, including 8 toxic heavy metals.
     
  • Bar graph results of 6 significant essential mineral ratios.
     
  • Bar graph depicting low and acceptable ranges for 9 toxic mineral to metal ratios.
     
  • Calculated values for 11 additional ratios.
     
  • Brief explanation of the importance of each graph.

Unlike some labs that test for hair minerals, Trace Elements, Inc. does not wash the hair at the lab. Washing the hair removes some of the loosely bound minerals and can reduce some mineral readings by 50% or more. Their analysis report details graph results for 8 toxic metals, 15 nutritional minerals, 15 additional elements, 7 significant mineral ratios, and 9 toxic metal ratios.

The Profile 1 Hair Analysis is ideal for those individuals who are wanting to measure the levels of toxic metals and mineral ratios in their hair tissue as a way to monitor their nutritional status, chart their detoxification progress, and get a detailed blueprint of their nutritional metabolic activity.


Interpretation of Results

Please Note: The basic Proflie 1 HTMA does not come with a written analysis of the results. However we offer a personalized review and consultation (by phone) to help you understand what your results mean and what you can do to improve your mineral balancing and any nutritional deficiencies.

Our Hair Analysis Review and Intrepration of Results is performed by nutritional therpy practitioner Rainbow Lopez, M.A., N.T.P. Rainbow was personally trained by Dr. Rick Malter (author of "The Strands of Health" book) in the complexities of interpreting the hair tissue mineral analysis by Trace Elements, Inc.

Rainbow Lopez

Rainbow will go over in detail the results of your test and explain how the levels measured relate to your metabolic rate, stress and energy levels. She will make further recommendations on diet and supplementation that is specific to your needs for improving your mineral balancing and any nutritional deficiencies. For more details about her Hair Analysis Review and Consultation, please click here.

After the phone consultation she will recap the main points discussed and send you a 2-4 page written summary via email. The summary will outline indications according to metabolic type, stress ratio, heavy metal sensitivity, blood sugar ratio, and endocrine gland ratios, etc. To view a Hair Analysis Interpretation Summary, please click here.

The cost for this 50 minute phone consultation is $90 on its own; however if you choose the option to purchase the Profile 1 Report + Personalized Review together you save $10. For a full bio of Rainbow, please click here.

If you choose not to use our service, we suggest you take your report (along with your doctor's copy) to your naturopathic doctor or other healthcare practitioner for further guidance if needed.


Customer Feedback:

"I ordered a hair tissue analysis online and I can tell you this has been the best money I have spent in reference to finding out more about my health.  I learned more from this analysis than I have from years of blood and urine tests and doctor visits.  Tissue analysis is far more accurate than blood and urine.  I would highly recommend this test to anyone.  I'm definitely posting a recommendation on my Facebook page, and plan to make verbal and email recommendations to family and friends. Thank you so very much for giving me a clear picture. The truth is in the tissues."- Barbara P., Nashville, TN


8 Toxic Heavy Metal Elements: Antimony, uranium, arsenic, beryllium, mercury, cadmium, lead and aluminum. These heavy metals are well-known for their interference upon normal biochemical function and causing numerous imbalances in the body.

15 Essential Minerals: Calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, copper, zinc, phosphorus, iron, manganese, chromium, selenium, boron, cobalt, molybdenum, and sulfur. These nutrients play significant roles in such metabolic processes such as muscular activity, endocrine function, reproduction, skeletal integrity, and overall development.

Also includes 15 Additional Elements including: Germanium, barium, bismuth, rubidium, lithium, nickel, platinum, thallium, vanadium, strontium, tin, titanium, tungsten and zirconium. All mineral/metal levels are reported in milligrams percent (milligrams per one-hundred grams of hair). One milligram percent (mg%) is equal to ten parts per million (ppm).

6 Significant Mineral Ratios: Ca/P, Na/K, Ca/K, Zn/Cu, Na/Mg, Ca/Mg, Fe/Cu. If the relationship between certain minerals in the body is disturbed, normal biological functions and metabolic activity can be adversely affected.

9 Toxic Mineral/Metal Ratios: Ca/Pb, Fe/Pb, Fe/Hg, Se/Hg, Zn/Cd, An/Hg, S/Hg, S/Cd, S/Pb. Individuals with elevated toxic levels may not always exhibit clinical symptoms associated with those particular toxic minerals. However, research has shown that toxic minerals/metals can also produce an antagonistic effect on various essential minerals, leading to disturbances in their metabolic utilization.

Also included are 11 Additional Ratios: Ca/Sr, Cr/V, Cu/Mo, Fe/Co, K/Co, K/Li, Mg/B, S/Cu, Se/Tl, Se/Sn, Zn/Sn


A calculated comparison of two elements to each other is called a ratio. To calculate a ratio value, the first mineral level is divided by the second mineral level.

Reference Ranges: Generally speaking, the reference ranges in the report should be considered as guidelines for comparison with the reported test values. These reference ranges have been statistically established from studying an international population of "healthy individuals". The reference ranges should not be considered as absolute limits for determining deficiency, toxicity or acceptance.

More Customer Feedback:

"Our family (nine children) has found many helpful things on your site. The most significant is your Comprehensive Hair Analysis. We have begun using it on the most serious health issues in our family and have found it to be very useful in getting to the root of our health problems. No significant toxic levels of heavy metals have been found, but the hair analysis is a life saver in addressing some of the emotional health issues we have. Thank you!"
- Marvin L., Howell, MI
